Meandering Meadow Corner Fold Over Fun-Fold Card

Hello stampers and happy Saturday to you. Today I have some Meandering Meadow corner fold over “fun-fold” cards for you. This technique is not super difficult, but it IS a lot of fun and is perfect with the Meandering Meadow paper. Perhaps you are not aware of this beautiful paper, and I totally understand that. It is one of the lovely “online exclusives” products that can only be found online. No worries, I will have a link for you to click on in the product list at the end of my blog post.


The Sketch


I find it helpful to have a diagram where I can see where the cutting lines are and where the score lines are. Measurements are helpful too!

The Cards


I made the card in two different variations, one in Very Vanilla and one in Petal Pink. Let’s take a look. (I do have to say, this type of card is very difficult to photograph well!)

Diagonal Stack and Shuffle Technique

Hello stampers and happy Monday to you. Today I have a very fun technique to share with you. I call it the Diagonal Stack and Shuffle technique. It was my squirrel friend and fellow Canadian demonstrator Tamara Bertram who first showed me this style of card. What fun!! Just like her. To make it even easier for you I have also made a diagram to show you how and where to cut your patterned paper to make it work. Further on in this blog post you can also watch the YouTube tutorial that I made to make three lovely cards using Winter Meadow designer series paper. Not only is this paper gorgeous for Christmas cards, it is also great for sympathy and get well cards. Shall we take a look??

Here you can see a closeup of how well the “bling” matches the paper. They are called Tinsel Gems.

This technique is also fantastic for Christmas cards or just a thinking of you card. The sentiment on the one card comes from Nested Friends and the other is from Joy to You.

Video Tutorial


In this video I not only show you the diagonal stack and shuffle technique, I also explain a family favourite game. This dice game is great for all ages and has provided countless hours of joy for my parents. Gerard and I even played this game with Messenger video chat during COVID. Enjoy!!



Diagram for Measurements: Diagonal Stack and Shuffle Technique


Here is a diagram that I made to help you “see” it rather than just watch the video. I think it is a helpful tool.





Thanks for joining me today! I hope you were inspired and that you have fun with this technique. Below you will find a product list that is also a link to my Canadian online store. Have a super day. Hugs from Holland,

Cheer Corner “Roodborstje”

Hello stampers and happy Monday to you. Today I am sharing a lovely “Roodborstje” (which is a European robin) card with you that I made for my Cheer Corner last week. There are two things that I think make this card super special. The first is the detail on the birch trees that have been added with a blender pen and a black watercolour pencil. Secondly, the European robin or “roodborstje” has been coloured with watercolour pencils and Blends! Watch my video for the trick to make it easier to blend your colours together!!

"Roodborstje" or Redbreast bird in a birch tree card using Aspen Tree dies and Perched in a Tree, all supplies Stampin'Up! designed by The Pampered Stamper.


Where is the greenery from??


The European robin, or roodborstje, looks quite natural perched in all this greenery. You may have various greenery already to choose from in your existing stash of stamps and dies, but this is what I used. You can thank me that all of the dies and the stamps for the greenery come from ONE bundle, Joy of Noel.  It’s a fantastic bundle. You might want to add it to your order on Wednesday when you take advantage of the seasonal sale saving 10-20% on inks, paper, cardstock and ribbon from the annual catalog. This stamp set isn’t on sale, but you may as well add something fun to all the essentials that you will be ordering at a discount. Remember, if your order gets to $200, you also get host benefits even if it is only you ordering. What fun!!



The benefits of bundles


When you order the Joy of Noel bundle you will save 10%. That is because it is a current bundle in the holiday catalog. Perched in a Tree, the stamp set that the roodborstje or European robin comes from was bundled last year with the Aspen dies. It got carried over to the annual catalog and now it is no longer a bundle. No more ten percent discount. That is why I always encourage my customers and team members to buy the bundles when they are first offered as such.


Seasonal Sale with Stampin'Up! November 14-16 2023 with discounts on paper, ink, cardstock and ribbon.

Altered Aspen Dies

Hello stampers and happy Tuesday to you. Have you perhaps overlooked the stunning Aspen dies? These dies coordinate with the Perched in a Tree stamp set and today I have altered the die to make a very cute raccoon card.

I was scanning over my stamp sets in my Kallax IKEA shelf and I saw this stamp and realized that I have never inked it up. The Aspen dies had also not been used for a very long time and I wanted to combine them. My first instinct was to use the lovely Fragrant Forest background stamp but this was a better fit. The only obstacle was that the forest was too thick to properly show off my chosen creature, the raccoon.


Wild & Sweet Aspen Dies Card


Here is a picture of my card so you can see how I changed the Aspen die to make it work. If you watch the video, you will get a better idea of how I did it.


Here for You card using Aspen dies and Wild & Sweet stamp set all from Stampin'Up! with card design by The Pampered Stamper.


Video Tutorial


I always enjoy watching a video to see how the card is made. You can fast forward through the boring bits or if you think my colouring or blending is taking too long. Really, it is a free class! I hope you like it! If you do, please share on social media or comment and give a thumbs up. All those things really make a difference in my business.

Long Distance Club

Hello stampers and happy Monday to you. I am getting back into the swing of regularly blogging and it feels good. The other thing I am trying to be consistent in is customer engagement. Pre-COVID and pre-world traveling I hosted five different stamp clubs. With my lifestyle change that is no longer going to work but I would like to something similar on a grander scale. Would you like to hear more about it? I am going to call it my Long Distance Club.


Long Distance Stamp Club


Long Distance Club and How it Works


The long distance club is designed to give me consistent sales and to give you consistent teaching and exclusive content. It’s a win-win situation. There will be an exclusive private Facebook group for long distance club members. There will be a monthly Zoom meeting with the chance to connect. In the Facebook group there will also be a monthly card class. Each club member will get happy mail from me each month and to distribute the free host products there will be a quarterly Bingo game. Does that sound like fun? All you have to do is either place a monthly $40 order or a quarterly $120 order.

Ideally I would like to start this club in July, so let me know if you want to be a part of this new venture! I forgot to tell you that your membership in the Long Distance club with also give you free membership in my Prime Time group as well as a free pdf tutorial from the International Create With Us tutorial bundle team.


Long Distance Club


Stamping Retreats


One thing that I love to organize is intimate stamping retreats. As a member of the Long Distance Club you will get first dibs at these retreats. Before registration opens to the public, you will get a chance to register first. Depending on where everyone is from that will help me decide on a retreat location. Here is a photo from our last team retreat. This is the vibe that I am going for in our retreats:  peace, tranquility and community.



Regular retreats are also a part of the wonderful perks of being on my Beyond Pampered Team as a demonstrator. If you want to join my team you can do so by clicking on this link. The starter kit is always a great deal!!


Ending With A Card


I should end this blog post with a card don’t you think? Here is the card that I made for my Cheer Corner this morning. It uses the stamp set Brewed For You and is a great masculine card. This card was NOT my original idea, I cased it from Kylie Page who was in turn inspired by Mikaela Titheridge. I love how we all help each other out in the crafting world! Here is the link to Kylie’s blog so you can check both of those cards out too.
